CALIFORNIA - A week before the National Basketball Association's annual star studded All Star Game, one of the NBA's hottest teams made the Filipino community into all stars.

The Los Angeles Clippers recently hosted its annual Filipino Heritage night.

The Clippers, currently among the top teams in the NBA right now, has celebrated this every season since 2009.

Filipino fans were treated to some Filipino entertainment before the game and during halftime.

They also brought home commemorative t-shirts and even got to take pictures at a photo booth.

"It was a great thrill for us to fill the court, to match the energy with what the Clippers are doing now these days," said Joel Jacinto, of Kayamanan ng Lahi.
